I read an article about Angry Birds and it’s little by little dominating all over the world.

First off – Google has adopted Angry Birds, via its Chrome browser adding the game that already runs on Android and Windows phones, webOS, and Sony’s PlayStation. It runs on other Web browsers, too, but only through Chrome can the players purchase Mighty Eagle (which helps them level up in the game). Read the rest of this entry »

President Aquino, who swept to power last year on a platform of ending poverty by fighting corruption, has his sights on a high-profile target — his predecessor Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, who faces accusations of election fraud, bribery and kickbacks.

Hindi na ‘yan kagulat-gulat dahil normal na sa Pilipinas ang korapsyon! Pampanga Rep. Gloria MAcapagal Arroyo herself prosecuted corruption charges against her predecessor, former President Joseph Ejercitko Estrada, who was convicted of plunder and sentenced to life imprisonment.

Dealing With The Rubber Duckies

Posted: October 16, 2011 in Uncategorized

Rubber Duckies

I don’t know when it started but somewhere in the middle of my life I decided I needed to be surrounded by rubber duckies. Yep, sila nga! Pero ngayon ko lang na-realize. I guess talagang mahirap nang makahanap ng true friends noh!

Bakit nga ba may rubber duckies pa? Nakakaloka kung isipin kung ano ang gusto nyang papel sa buhauy mo, isang BFF and at the end sya ang worst enemy mo, para lang maging esciting ang buhay mo.

Plastic kapag…..

Tuwing may makikitang bagong gamit ka, ang tanong agad ay “Anong brand ‘yan?”. Tiyak hindi agad siya magagandahan kapag hindi kilalang “brand name” ang may gawa noon.

Gusto lang magpunta sa “party” na idaraos sa maganda at malaking bahay o sa kilalang night club o restaurant.

Madaling mahikayat ng mga may kotse o latest gadgets.

Kunwari ay mapili sa pagkain o inumin. Ayaw ng dinuguan dahil nakakaitim ng ngipin, ayaw ng adobo dahil malangis, ayaw ng ganoon at ganito kesyo kung anu-anong dahilan.

Mahilig sa chismis.

Ayaw magpapaiwan sa istorya. Pag may nagkwento na nakapunta ang isa sa ganoong lugar, siya din nakapunta na at dadagdagan pa ng ibang mas sikat na lugar.

Gusto siya ang laging una. Siya ang dapat munang inimbita sa halip na ang iba niyang kakilala. Siya muna ang dapat silbihan da handaan. Siya muna ang dapat alukin ng kahit ano.

Maligaya lamang kapag nakakita ng kwarta.

Mabait at magiliw pag may kailangan sa iyo. Etat ka na kapag hindi mo nagawa o naibigay ang nais niya.

Mahilig magpunta sa mga mamahaling lugar at kainan, pero ang gusto ikaw ang gagastos.

AT kahit kailan, hindi mo maaasahan mapakiusapan man lamang o mahilingan ng kahit ano. Bale wala ang lahat, siya ang sentro ng sangkalibutan at lahat ay nabubuhay lamang para pumaligid at sundin ang nais niya! Plastic na, makatok pa!

Looks like Lady Gaga smashed a new video of the year again! Although I watched it on Perez Hilton‘s blog, which was leaked and made Gaga forced to promote it on MTV and tweeted for her 1000th tweets..

Finally, the new single “You And I” made a lot of hits on youtube, tweets on twitter, download on Itunes and more.. The incomparable diva knocks out the music industry today.

The fourth video from her Born This Way album had not been due to debut until August 18, but she released the Nebraska-fimed clip last night on Twitter as her 1000th tweet, writing: “You must love all + every part of me, as must I, for this complex + incomprehensible force to be true.”

The new clip “finds Gaga tapping into her various alter-egos, from male ‘greaser’ counterpart Jo Calderone to Yuyi the Mermaid,” adds Billboard.

Watch the video and see the GUY alter ego of Gaga and the mermaid sex:

With such rains that bombarded in the Metro Manila, one of the biggest issue that is now trending not only in the news but in several social networks like Facebook and  Twitter that Christopher Lao –submerge his car on flood and got his interview on GMA-7’s news 24 Oras.

Christopher Lao is a UP Law student whose YouTube video went viral that currently went up to 161,197 views.  In the video, Lao tried to drove his car into deep flood waters in Quezon City.

A transcript of the video was kindly provided:

Lao: I think this a problem with the traffic enforcers as well and the MMDA, because they should have already blocked the road.

Reporter: Hindi mo ba alam na ganun ka siyang malalim?

Lao: Wala! Kasi tingnan mo oh, who will tell me, who will tell me? Really? Did you guys even tell me?

Reporter: Ah well, nandito kami [sa kabila ng baha]…

Lao: Oh yun, sino ba yung mga nandoon?

Reporter: …na-surprise nga kami… [unintelligible]

Lao: Eh sino yung mga nandoon sa side na yun? Did, did anyone tell—Wala! No one even stopped! Nobody informed! It’s like, people were waiting for someone to just do that. (Glares at reporter)

Reporter: Pero hindi mo ba na-realize na malalim?

Lao: Why do you info—why do i—Bakit ako? Diba? (laughs ironically) Dapat i-inform, i-inform, I should have been informed, yun lang yun.

And as the video goes hit in YouTube several videos like the reaction of Hitler in Christopher Lao’s “caught-our-attention” clip.

I don’t wanna judge him on whatever you call on his actions in the flood but one thing that bothers me is that, why this thing is such a big deal for any body?! C’mon! move on!

However, I don’t symphatize that way Lao’s action on his car stunt in the flood along mother ignacia in QC. Here’s the official statement of Lao on his current issues:

Official Statement from Christopher Lao

4 August 2011

The past few days have been very disheartening for me and my family. As you know I have been a subject of a viral video that showed my helplessness during a trying moment. As it stands right now, I have several hate pages in Facebook and Twitter with hurtful and derogatory messages attacking my person. The reputation that I built the past years has been besmirched. A bad day has now turned into wounded feelings and sleepless nights for me and my family.

I have been silent the past few days as I want this to go away soon but not before saying sorry and thank you to people who matter.

I would like to apologize for my behavior that was seen on nationwide television and now on the internet. It was unfortunate that I was caught on camera immediately after an overwhelmingly stressful mishap.

I would like to again sincerely thank those who braved the flood to help a distraught stranger like me. Their selfless act reminded me of how dependable Filipinos are in times of crisis.

Lastly, I would like to thank my family, friends and all of those who showed empathy, consideration and support throughout these trying times. You have given me strength and courage to rise above and be a better person.

Sincerely yours,

Christopher Lao

Official Statement released via Marlon Cornelio.

It’s good that he acknowledges his faults, and I hope he learned a lot from this torture.

Truth Or Tactics?

Since Zaldy Ampatuan is hoping to stand not as a criminal but as a witness in the controversial “Ampatuan Massacre” case, people raised their eyebrows on what on earth is he thinking? Many speculations have been running around to this idiotic plans of pinning down of his father and brother to be the suspect.

Is it just for the sake of justice or just a dirty tactics that’s running around Zaldy Ampatuan’s plan: (1.) He would pin down his father and brother that they are involved in the crime to be a Maguindanao’s hero and eventually to run for power and lead again? (2.) His saying the truth, but unfortunately he is also the one plans the massacre and to avoid him for getting in prison, he will stand a s a witness.. and other speculation goes on…

Some members of the House of Representatives weighed in on the purported plan for Zaldy Ampatuan to turn state witness.

Said Cagayan de Oro City Rep. Rufus Rodriguez: “One of the conditions is that the applicant is the least guilty and his testimony is necessary for the conviction of the others principally accused. There are many witnesses with direct testimonies here, so Zaldy is not necessary.”

Ilocos Norte Rep. Rodolfo Fariñas, vice chair of the House committee on justice, said it was up to Zaldy Ampatuan to prove that he deserved to be a state witness and that his testimony was crucial to convict the accused.

Rep. Neri Colmenares of party-list group, Bayan Muna, said the evidence in the case was so overwhelming as to make the former governor’s testimony superfluous.

Colmenares said what the case needed was a quicker pace in the proceedings so that a verdict would be reached as soon as possible.

Redemberto Villanueva, another of Zaldy Ampatuan’s lawyers disputed reports that Zaldy Ampatuan had moved to another prison cell because of a quarrel with his father.

It has nothing to do with that. He was transferred because of his medical condition. These are just rumors,” the lawyer said.

Villanueva on Thursday asked Judge Jocelyn Solis-Reyes to allow his client to stay at St. Luke’s Medical Center for at least five days for 12 medical tests for diabetes and another 12 for high blood pressure.

Judge Jocelyn Solis-Reyes gave the prosecution until Friday to submit a formal comment.

[My client] needs at least five days because there are preparations that have to be made for each test, and these could last for eight to 12 hours,” Villanueva said.

He has shortness of breath. We are concerned that it might become worse and so we have to bring him to the hospital because the doctors need special equipment to conduct these tests,” the lawyer said. But Santos was not impressed.

He’s a flight risk. And with all these rumors, the timing of his motion is suspect,” she said. “We will insist that he be arraigned first.”

Santos also said that if the former governor really needed to be examined for his ailments, the tests could be conducted in the maximum security prison.


The Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Election are wrapped up and I’m definite that declaration of the newly-elected representatives is another story.

Voting has been postponed in three towns in Isabela province that were horribly severely harmed by typhoon “Juan”. Violence in Maguindanao and Lanao del Sur lead to resolution of nonachievement of elections, but complete, yesterdays elections were broadly chatting serene, that was as showed by the police officer and military.

The poll was postponed in total of 1,732 barangays out of 42, 025 barangays in the country. Why? A divergent obstacle bedeviled the elections, impelling the postponement: ballots and other paraphernalia came late or did not come at all.

So, what happened? Comelec put the find clear fault to the National Printing Office for the retard in the deliverance of the ballots. In environs where the elections dropped through, there were the typical grievances about the names vanishing from the voters’ lists. A new obstacle in this electoral exercise was the candidacy over 4,000 incumbent barangay representatives who were ineligible to run because they have now performed three following terms. The labels were furnished to the Comelec by the Department of Interior and Local Government. Why weren’t those candidates identified early on and disqualified from running?

The Comelec said some incumbent barangay representatives brazenly dismissed their three-term fix and are looking for re-election. Voters can make the Comelec’s purge of these candidates less difficult by picking new settlement officials.

President Aquino articulated public sentiment when he said he was dissatisfied with the preparations for the elections. The aged manual procedure of voting was employed and the Comelec is assumed to be organized for the more troubles that could crop up. If it is established that the retard in the deliverance of election paraphernalia was intentional, the Comelec should analyze the prospect of applying the new justice on electoral sabotage, which carries weighty retributions, in resistance to those involved. Poll automation in May this year marked a general improvement in Philippine elections. The barangay and SK polls should not be a step backward.

 

Despite having only a minimal knowledge of the legal system, people still stuck in the old fashioned myth – Justice For The Rich And Nothing For The Poor system. Let’s start with a simple thought. Most people are ok with a spot of unfairness around the place, even ideally. Ideally? Surely not! No, I think so. Trying to blueprint a perfectly “fair” society is an interesting and educational exercise.

But it’s important to see, not just that the blueprint is “ideal” – with all the difficulties that entails: politics the art of the possible and all – but that, even if we could have this ideal, we might prefer something else.

How so? There are lots of values (of competition and risk and achievement, for example) that are only plausibly realizable in an environment in which there is some unfairness (for some values of “unfair”). To take a trivial example: it isn’t unreasonable to prefer poker to chess, even though there’s more room for luck in poker; hence it is, in at least one sense, less ‘fair’ as games go. Cohen emphasizes a different angle.

Its been 9 years (to be exact) since this hate letter for Filipinos is not new for the other especially for those who are so Internet geek to social networking sites like facebook, plurk, twitter or even at friendster. And since Filipinos are now top of the headline in news all over the world about the “hostage taking”, maybe this letter resurrect in an instant!

Amplaya, Bitter Ocampo, Justine Bitter, Bitternessa or whatever you may call it..

What does it taste like? You may no longer wish to associate with people who remind you of your ex, causing those friends to feel awkward and alienated.

There will be a possible “jowa” (partners) that will into our lives for some reasons; it might be to help us out of a crisis, to teach us something new, to boost our confidence and build us up to face the next stage of our journey, or to be the permanent spouse we seek. The trouble with many single people is that they are so keen to find such a person, they tend to believe every person they meet will be the RIGHT ONE, the permanent partner.
